Yea, The desert scheme didn't look that bad. I was just ready for something new and this was my first paint job. I think it came out alright. I hope to re-maiden it this evening.

It's a really good flying plane. I use it for my onboard cam, since it's so smooth and stable. Glides extremely well. I have lights for it too, but I haven't reinstalled them yet.

I had some 5mm Led's installed. I removed them to paint it. Red in left wing tip, green in right, white blinking on top behind canopy.

I actually recycled the factory stickers. I removed them carefully and used paint thinner to get the old paint off, then glued them back.
